Karen Fuchs is an award winning photographer who has been shooting internationally for the past 25 years. Her work has appeared on numerous covers, features, campaigns, and her personal work has been exhibited in several shows in Europe and America, including 2 solo shows.

She is a classically trained, almost purist film shooter turned digital, yet maintaining the level of control and discipline from her analogue days to find that single moment – Karen’s roots are firmly held to a less is more approach. Her passion, sense of style, and ability to deeply connect with the subjectmatter are reflected in the bold imagery she creates.

In recent years she has started focusing more on personal projects besides commissioned work, keeping her love for her art strong.

Having lived in 4 countries, on 3 continents, she has been based out of the New York area for the past 20 years.
